Army to change online hiring tool
February 15, 2011
HEIDELBERG, Germany -- Over the next two years the U.S. Army will transition from one automated recruitment tool to another for advertising vacant civil service positions, accepting applications from job seekers, and evaluating the job seeker's eligibility and qualifications.
In Europe, the transition from Resumix to USA Staffing will be completed by April 30, 2011. During the transition period, each job announcement will have instructions to guide job seekers through the application process for the specified recruitment tool.
You will notice the following differences between USA Staffing and Resumix:
- USA Staffing uses assessments to determine the best qualified candidates instead of Resumix skills.
- Announcements will be available on www.USAJobs.gov and www.ArmyCivilianService.com
- Applicants must apply through USA Jobs-Application Manager, not the Army Resume Builder.
- Applicants must answer assessment questions for each vacancy.
- Applicants can upload supporting documentation, for example DD-214 or SF-50.
- Managers will receive a referral list by logging in to an automated system called Selection Manager instead of receiving a PDF referral list via email.
Army officials recommended that you create a resume in both Resumix and USA Jobs-Application Manager. Once your resume is on file in both systems, you can easily apply for jobs from the job announcement. The job announcement will provide guidance on which system to use to submit your resume.
